I have instructed Sam on a number of occasions in the past whilst I was working at other firms and I recently instructed her on a particularly acrimonious children matter where Sam represented my client at a Fact Find Hearing. Sam is an experienced, robust and determined Advocate who is always incredibly thorough in her preparation. She has a professional manner and is also extremely personable - she always deals with matters in a sensitive way and she builds up a great rapport with clients. Sam is also extremely approachable and helpful at all times. She went above and beyond at my Fact Find Hearing and achieved a great outcome for my client, who was over the moon. I would not hesitate to use Sam again. Truly 5 star service from start to finish. - Instructing solicitor
